This grand circa 1900s Scottish Baronial mansion crafted by renowned Sydney architect George Leslie Grant offers the chance to secure a rich lifestyle estate for the whole family to enjoy, in a prestigious Wahroonga setting.

Impressive from every angle, a glance around reveals impeccable period details mingling with modern luxury spaces.

A cobbled stone driveway carries guests up to a scene of palatial elegance where an ornate fountain and stately facade are embraced by lush gardens.

Glide through the marble-stepped porte-cochère entry and find hardwood parquetry flooring, four-metre high ceilings and an architrave hallway presenting a formal living area and banquet-sized dining room, both with fireplaces.

Move through the home and notice original Art Nouveau stained-glass windows flooding the space with natural light. A modern granite and gas kitchen features a scullery and suite of European appliances and sits beside a casual meals area that flows out onto a sandstone-flagged verandah and sun-drenched paved alfresco dining space.

Also connected to the intimate outdoor area is a custom-built billiard room featuring pressed metal ceilings, a fireplace and a bathroom with shower, making it perfect for repurposing into additional accommodation space.

Climb upstairs and find a tranquil haven with five bedrooms, two bathrooms, and multiple balconies. The master and second bedroom both enjoy elevated garden and leafy district views, one with a fireplace and one with a private balcony. The other three bedrooms also boast balcony access.

Only minutes from Wahroonga’s vibrant café precinct, elite schools and boutique village shops, this grand estate could not be more perfectly placed.

The auction for this prestigious heritage property is scheduled for September 3 at 12pm.
